Ladies Weekend Part 2

Well it was wonderful to get away and get to spend some time with ladies I love. If I had to choose a scripture to sum up the weekend it would be 2 Corinthians 5:15 -20 which reads:

"He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for him who dies for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting mens' sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God."

We slept very little because we were talking late into the night, drank at least 5 pots of coffee and talked, sat in the hot tub and talked, ran from a rainstorm, ate out and talked, ate in and talked, talked through a power outage, talked through a movie, shared our testimonies, and shopped. And we talked to our families a little. How can we get so little sleep and come away so refreshed?
